Cajun Cauliflower with Cilantro Avocado Sauce

Let’s take a moment to appreciate Cauliflower. As the cousin of broccoli, cauliflower has a similar nutritional benefit. I’m also a fan of Cauliflower for its versatility. It works well as a substitute for some of my favorite carb-charged comfort foods – think mashed potatoes and pizza crust. Yum! I’m currently crazy about this recipe for Cajun Cauliflower with Cilantro Avocado sauce. Happy cooking and enjoy!

On my quest to find healthy and wholesome foods, I love to try new veggies. This yummy fall salad features Kohlrabi – a knobby veggie shaped like a turnip.

So, how exactly do you prepare this superfood? You can eat it raw, steamed or baked. Today, we will prepare it raw and pair it with some lovely crisp September apples and Tarragon leaves. Let’s dive in! Happy Cooking and Enjoy!
